Description

Ready Player One : From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name. The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

    Please spend your money on something else. The Incredibles 2, Back to the Future, SpiderVerse, Jumanji, or some current movie. Now I did not pay to see this movie; though, I’ve seen it. It has been out long enough that’s its on TV. I was mildly curious about it when it came out but was afraid because I am familiar with the book. I am not a huge fan of the book though it is fine. I don’t want to compare how the book is different than the movie though it is. The issue with this movie without any major spoilers is that it is jarring in regards to the animation and bland dialogue wise. The protagonist’s delivery is plain partially because the conversations in movie seem forced. Now this is a action movie which is a fine genre; the issue is that the action in this movie takes place in a animated world and often the cuts are harsh back to the real world. This creates a unsettling uncanny valley effect. The other issue is the action often goes nowhere; undeveloped characters interacting with or just looking at something that only exists to check mark some nostalgia box. While this movie contains many pop culture references they end up feeling pointless, out of place, and shallow. While, some people might say the Spielberg references are great; if they were Spielberg fans they’d be disappointed with pacing and plot of the movie. It is hard to understand why this movie has a good rating; it is likely that as time goes on opinion on it will shift if it is even remembered at all. I’ve called Ready Player One a movie because that is how it is being marketed as Spielberg going back to his popcorn eating popular movie making roots, and I want it to be clear that it is bad on the “let’s watch a movie just to kill time kind of level”. As a film, this movie would be considered absolute garbage; so if your looking for a film go watch Ikiru, African Queen, Green Book, or a film you’ve watched before. As a final note, I gave it 2 stars because it’s not even a so bad it’s good kinda of movie.

  • Which book was referenced?

    Ok, so I understand why some of the things in the book wouldn’t fit well in a two hour and ten minute movie, but somethings, like the PAC-MAN game where Wade got the quarter and Ultraman (which wasn’t in the movie either) would have been as good of a way to end the story as was shown in the movie, and would have been more faithful to the book that it was supposedly based off of. I was overall disappointed. With Steven Spielberg and Ernest Cline for letting his amazing book be turned into this monstrosity. It was an entertaining, action-packed movie, but if you are looking for a movie-version of the book Ready Player One, you’ll be disappointed.
  • One of the worst movies I’ve watched in years

    The plot does not make sense. The pacing of the movie is horrible. The characters are so transparent. The book is on my top 10 for entertainment; however, the movie does not follow one bit of the book. Do yourself a favor and read the book it’s 100 times better. I was really excited for this movie but for the first time in years I was left angry after watching a movie.

    A good film that won’t force you to think too much. More could have been done with the material, which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. AMAZING special effects though.

    Ready Player One collects everything that was great about growing up in the 80s and blasts it onto the screen in all its glory. It both makes you look back in delight at where gaming has been and also forward in anticipation of future gaming technologies yet to come. I only wish it was longer so we could get even more story elements from the book, which you should also definitely check out. Overall, this movie is an absolute blast.

    Well, where to begin...I think my opinion is a good start. Ready Player One is a great (pretty faithful) adaptation of Cline’s that had me smiling all the way through and made me yell, laugh, and cheer the entire time. I’m a huge geek and this movie was MADE for me. That’s the first problem that lies within this movie. It’s made for geeks, nerds, and comic and anime junkies. People are not so much like them, will probably think that this is just an okay movie, nothing to get worked up over, so if you don’t fall within those groups of people like ME, then chances are you probably won’t enjoy this movie to the max. The second and last problem is only a few scenes with Wade’s aunt, but now onto the good stuff. Spielberg brings his A-Game here as he delivers on the spectacle and makes sure everyone does their best too. Fun Spielberg is finally back so fans of him REJOICE. Tye plays a very convincing Wade and Olivia is amazing as Art3mis. Simon, Mark, Ben, and the rest of the cast also deliver incredible performances. Alan Silvestri’s score combined with the throwback songs mix well (listen for the tiny queues). Finally, I want to end with the story and references. The story is light in some parts and that’s fine, because when it kicks into high gear, IT’S AMAZING. And the references are too many to count. Seriously, watch it, then watch it again, because chances are you’ll never spot every single reference this movie will throw at you. But in the end, what are we left with? Is it an Oscar contender? No. Is it terrible? NO. It’s a fun movie and a geeky movie and should be appreciated as one.

    Loved the book, absolutely disgusted by the onscreen adaptation. Would have given zero stars if iTunes would let me. They didn’t even try to stay true to the book. Only the Jason Bourne movies have less in common with the books they are named after. Horrible acting too. I wish I had not bought the movie. My wife agrees.

    It upsets me that the author let this travesty happen. There is nearly no truth from the source besides the names and a handful of scenes. Anyone that has read the book I highly recommend not watching this Hollywood money grab. Readers this movie has absolutely nothing to do with what you think it should be.

    It's hardly still the same story. Yes it is entertaining, but come on! OG is only shown twice in the movie. I was so disappointed, I know that the movies usually aren’t close to the book but this should have honestly had another name entirely. I would have done a better job

    There is a lot to like about this film, but it is visually exhausting. It is overkill at a level that combines Speed Racer with the Transformers series. The story is very basic - male and female leads, a posse, a bad guy with minions, a macguffin, and an ending. It is so heavily overembroidered, though, that it can be very tiring to watch. It is also designed for those who actually care about such things as the 2600, Sonic, D&D, and Pop Rocks. The Shining sequence was out of left field and was great to some degree. Overall, I see it as an okay film. It is not one that I will watch again until a couple of years have passed.
  • I REALLY wanted to like it.

    I don’t get why so many loved it. The whole thing felt rushed and jammed together, acting is REALLY bad and is basically a Peter Jackson hobbit… this should have been a trilogy and should have stuck to the book story.
  • Great film!

    I’m sad to say that while I was really excited when I first heard about the movie, I was hugely disappointed in the movie. They took a fantastic story and turned it into hogwarts meets tron :(
  • Director ruins another great book

    By Ashleigh2121
    This is just another action movie that has completely demolished the idea of the book itself. God forbid a director follow someones hard written work even slightly. Spoiler for those who took the time to read this great work. Wade meets Samantha right after the stacks are blown up before even meeting H, diato, shoto and Ogden. In this movie he doesnt even meet Ogden until the very end, daito is not killed by IOI and Wade doesnt meet H until 3/4 of the movie is over. The aunt is made to seem like the victim rather than the trash she is in the book. There is nothing about the school mentioned. Samantha is the one who gets captured by IOI and she is the one who figures out most of the clues. All of this isnt even remotely in the book. This movie has put the spotlight mostly on Art3mis rather than Parzival. Its all just action scenes they have taken the brilliance of the video game aspect COMPLETELY OUT OF THIS MOVIE. These actors arent figuring out clues and making their way through a contest they are just fighting and battling the entire time. Another great book ruined by a joke of a director.
